Updated: Monday, July 21 2014, 07:43 AM EDT

OHIO COUNTY, W.Va. - Lincoln Detention Center, a juvenile facility, has released a statement after a guard was accused of molesting an inmate.

Krisinda McMahon, 41, is charged with five counts of imposition of sexual acts on a person incarcerated. According to the criminal complaint, McMahon had sexual contact on at least five occasions between March and June and used another inmate as a lookout.
McMahon has bonded out of jail, and faces 5 to 15 years in prison if convicted.

In a statement from Youth Services Systems,  "We had no knowledge of the alleged incidents prior to the filing of the criminal complaint. This person was not employed by y-s-s at the time the investigation was initiated. When allegations about juveniles in state custody are made, the Division of Juvenile Services along with the Department of Health and Human Resources initiate the investigation and involve law enforcement when warranted. Y.S.S.  is cooperating with the authorities in any way requested."
